Pump Testing

Bearing Fault Analysis

Field testing can assist in determining pump condition and optimizing maintenance planning. Planned maintenance can often be postponed or avoided based on testing data that verifies the pump condition.

Energy can be saved by optimizing pump and system operations. ProPump Services has experienced engineers equipped with the right tools to identify and solve your most complex pump, drive and system-related problems.

ProPump Services can supply experienced personnel and test equipment to perform a full range of pump, driver, and system testing. OEM-trained pump engineers are available to assist in the testing, analysis, and design improvements for most pump types and OEM brands.

A diagnostic specialist or pump engineer will visit your site, review the pump operating and maintenance history, conduct a walkdown inspection, interview operation and maintenance personnel, and perform required specialized testing to collect data that includes
